We already published this news July 30th, 2014 that Sigma CEO said they will use DP2 Quattro camera in upcoming Sigma SD2 camera..
Now today Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki again said that Sigma is planning to use the Foveon X3 Quattro Direct sensor of the DP2 Quattro camera in upcoming SD series camera..
First, we started with the sensor development. We had already been discussing what kind of sensor we make with the Foveon, Inc. and we as SIGMA wanted to improve image quality (resolution) by increasing the number of pixels. The Quattro image sensor was born to deal with the increased data. As the first camera to have the new sensor, we chose the dp because of the shockless body and the dedicated lens optimized for the ultra high-resolution capturing. Of course, we’re planning to use the sensor for the SLR SD body.
The first sigma SD1 DSLR was announced on 2012 and it was using the the same sensor of Sigma ‘Merrill’ camera, Sigma SD1 was announced at Photokina 2010.
I was actually hoping for something more better from Sigma for the upcoming SD2 series camera, share your thoughts with us in the comment box…

Sony manged to develop a new type of camera sensor for smartphones, the sensor will feature 12 Megapixel resolution and it’s called the new RGBW sensor… here W stands for the white pixels.. the white pixel here increase the sensitivity of the camera upto a great extent as you can see in the sample image below.
Now the individual pixels of the RGBW Sony sensor is 1.12μm, but due to the newly developed “RBGW Coding” the SN ratio (signal-to-noise ratio) equivalent to that of a unit pixel size of 1.4μm under conventional methods. We also hope that the same technology will be applied to APS-C and FF interchangeable lens camera in near future.
